Hampton Creek Salad Dressings

I have been a fan of Hampton Creek's Just Mayo since I was able to try a sample of their mayonnaise-like products last fall. A big fan. So much of a fan that I asked Hampton Creek if they would send me some of their new products to try, and they did!

I love, love, love these products! I love everything about Hampton Creek. All of the new dressings you see here are top-8 allergen-free and gluten-free. Like the original Just Mayo, these new products are based on pea protein. The ingredients lists are longer than the "mayo" products, so be sure to check the entire list before trying them.

Also, please note that these new products should be kept refrigerated (in contrast to the Just Mayo which should be refrigerated after opening). I usually find Just Mayo in the condiments aisle, I expect I will find these (when available in my local store) in the refrigerated section.

Now, for the real test, will my husband be able to tell that these are not traditional salad dressings? I served him a side salad topped with Just Thousand and he loved it.

Next up, we tried Just Ranch. I made a "whatever we had leftover in the fridge" dinner salad and topped it with this creamy ranch dressing:

It was just delicious!

These dressings are dead ringers for the traditional versions -- in most cases better, because they have less sugar than your standard off-the-shelf dressing.

A special note: Hampton Creek has also recently introduced cookies and cookie dough. Please be aware that these products contain wheat and gluten.

Disclaimer: Hampton Creek sent me complementary products to review.
